2012 UYBC Year in Review


2012 was the first full year of UYBC events and there was no shortage of good times that we hope people will remember for years to come. If you're not familiar with what the UYBC event series is, reading this post will definitely bring you up to speed and hopefully will encourage you to join us for future events over the coming year and beyond.

UYBC (Unofficial Yelp Bar Crawl) events focus on neighborhoods in and around the city of Seattle and gives everyone a great opportunity to see new places, visit old favorites, and hang out with a constantly changing group of friends over the course of one fun-filled night.


If you are wondering why they are referred to as "Unofficial Yelp" events, I can definitely help you out with that. These bar crawls were originally inspired by official Yelp bar crawl events that were hosted by the Seattle Yelp community manager and carry on the spirit of food, drinks, and fun that Yelp is known for. The Yelp website offers an event creating tool where community members can put together their own unofficial events that appear on the site, but are not overseen or managed by Yelp.


Since its humble beginnings on the Yelp event pages, the UYBC has expanded to Facebook events, Twitter, and our very own website, but will always maintain roots within the Yelp community. Below, you will find links to the Yelp event page for each month's bar crawl so you can see where we went and how it all went down. Be sure to check out the corresponding Facebook event pages to see even more info.
